Weekly Menu Post

I thought I would occasionally post our family's weekly meal might be more for myself--thanks for humoring me "followers" (for a reminder) of how much food I have ready to go and help avoid the drive through. The majority of meals this week will come prepared from my own freezer. The few that are being compiled the day of are easy casseroles, less than 15min prep time, and straight to the oven and then the table! We are facing a crazy week of hurrying here and there, trying to purchase a new car, stay on top of J's activites and both of us working...not to mention the dreary weather they are forcasting (hence the soup and other comfort foods).

Monday: Broccoli Cheddar Soup (from the freezer meal swap with friends) with a salad. (This is an easy meal will probably boil a box of pasta today to have ready for later in the week)

Tuesday: French Chicken (from our meal swap), thaw and put in crock pot..viola! Add a can of vegetables and it's a complete meal!
*need an easy meal tonight, we have Judo until 6pm*

Wednesday: Tuna Noodle Casserole
1 can cream of mushroom
1/2 soup can of milk
1 can (drained) tuna
salt and pepper to taste
4c. cooked pasta (prepared earlier in the week for ease)
Stir in a sprayed casserole dish, top with cheese and bake for 30-45min in a 350 degree oven. (Optional, add crushed potato chips last 5min of baking)

Thursday: Skillet Goulash with garlic bread & a small salad (easy one pot meal)
Brown ground beef in a skillet. Drain grease and wipe skillet clean. Return beef to skillet.
To the skillet add:
3 c. cooked pasta
2c. spaghetti sauce
Stir together and allow to simmer a few minutes for flavors to blend.
Bake/brown garlic bread of choice!

Friday: is our monthly dinner club with friends so it will be leftovers in our house to feed the children!

Saturday & Sunday will be me flying solo with the kids so if not enough leftovers for both days, we will bake up a frozen pizza and add some cottage cheese and applesauce on the side...easy (& from my own kitchen)!
